Annual Job Fair at Tri-County Fairgrounds draws a crowd
By Melissa Maddux
On Wednesday morning, the Eastern Sierra Employment Collaborators Group of Inyo County hosted their annual job fair at the Tri-County fairgrounds, with local and state-wide organizations that are currently looking for candidates with each type of skill and education level.
Each year, employers choose various seasons to search for potential job seekers based upon the availability of open positions and the skills that are required to fulfil those requirements.
Kelly Piper of Inyo County Social Services said they often “hear from employers [that] there is not a large enough pool of employees to pull from. [We] also hear from employees that they don’t know how to find out about the jobs that are out there. Our goal is to try to connect the two—the employer and the employee, so both their needs are met.”
This year’s Job Fair drew approximately 70 participants.
